    This just seems like a miracle to me. I seed bead with looming, etc.; but beadweaving just so enthrawling (sp?). One day I’m going to tackle this!

  • gembeans commented on the Design “” Trellis “”   2 months ago

    I must add, you are a ture designer.

  • gembeans commented on the Design “” Trellis “”   2 months ago

    Charming in the most stunning way! That clasp is the perfect addition.

  • gembeans commented on the Design “Druzy Does It”   2 months ago

    It’s like, where’s the hole… we were all so facinated with the wire work. And, the entire piece is lovely!

  • gembeans commented on the Design “Circus”   2 months ago

    Oh, oh, very cool!

  • gembeans commented on the Design “Queenie”   2 months ago

    Wow! Beautiful! and hard…

  • gembeans commented on the Design “Foliage”   2 months ago

    Lovely!

  • gembeans commented on the Design “Marrakesh Necklace”   2 months ago

    Yes, very pretty and festive. I think i have some of these same beads and never knew what to do with them. This is perfect. Every time i do different styles and colors together, mine looks like a kindergarden piece. I guess it helps to have similar beads inbetween. Your color mix is right on.

  • gembeans commented on the Design “Alternating Cellini Spiral Necklace in Pueblo”   2 months, 2 weeks ago

    Beautiful and colorful. Lovely. Perfect with the Tibetan beads. I have these turq frosted beads and I know they add such a pop. This spiral is just gorgeous! So admire you skills.

  • gembeans commented on the Design “Desert Mirage Necklace in Cellini Spiral / Russian Netted Spiral”   2 months, 2 weeks ago

    I love, love, love this look. Both of your pieces are beautiful and the colors are to die for. I do kumihimo and looming but have not yet had the courage to tackle weaving. I think this has given me the inspiration I need. It certainly has given me a thrill!

  • gembeans commented on the Design “For the Love of Dragonflies”   4 months ago

    Oooh, pretty.

  • gembeans commented on the Design “Gone fishin’”   4 months ago

    Way to go! I would not of had the courage to try the crystal or the fish. Both look great! Like you i’m addicted to these bracelets and the beads.

  • gembeans commented on the Design “Agates Rule”   4 months ago

    Those Czech beads were a great addition to the banded agate. I just might copy that idea!

  • gembeans commented on the Design “Green tagua nut”   4 months ago

    Just ran across one of these yesterday and I still wasn’t sure exactly what I wanted to do with the few I have. Love what you have done! You gave me great inspiration with this design. Think I have this color and a tan/brown color. I may even add a tassel to one. Thanks!

    OH MY WORD! This is Stunning! I so admire your hard work and patience. And yes, I also view this as a piece of art.

  • gembeans commented on the Design “Waiting for my Lizards to Come Back”   2 years, 2 months ago

    Just love your unique kumihimo designs and color combos! And yes, they are all beautiful!! I do love kumihimo too…(and lizards)

  • gembeans commented on the Design “Rizo “Lightbugs”finished necklace”   2 years, 3 months ago

    Just loving this look. Haven’t tried the rizzo beads yet.

  • gembeans commented on the Design “Pearly Girl”   2 years, 4 months ago

    Thanks for the info! Last night I was thinking… was that just an overhand knot, no that couldn’t have been. Needless to say these bracelets are so beautiful they have been haunting me! I was taking one more look and getting out my macrame supplies today. You saved me with the tutorial!

  • gembeans commented on the Design “Pearly Girl”   2 years, 4 months ago

    Yea these are great! And, I don’t get it. I thought these were just coil knots until I looked closely. Where the heck are the ends?? There’s something else going on here isn’t there?? Very nicely done!!
